I missed the dash cluster and hidden switch post on the first look. It is way cool. I was curious why you did not get the body sandbasted before you started the build.

Hey, I am curious, did you have to get your driveline shortened to fit the S-10 Chassis? Or is there a direct fit somewhere?

Awesome truck by the way!

...cause the exterior is not getting painted any more than it is right now.

The driveshaft was shortened....the engine/trans is slid back 4-6 inches from stock s-10 location.

I think the Camaro rear is about 6" wider. 61" vs 56" ....I think those are the measurements.

It looks good sitting in the weeds with those big rims.

Me too I think it matches the front fenders better. I may go this route if i can ever find a cab/frontclip that some one will part with,I know where there is a ford bed of that era at also. Drop em on an s-10 frame find some Chevrolet tailgate script drop in a 4.8 or 5.3 ls engine and a 5 or 6 speed
possibly add the center recess of a dakota hood to the chevy's

I don't like the way it looks at all! I prefer the stock rear fenders. On my 53 AD I put a 80's stepside bed on it to get the taller bed with flat tops, but I used the stock 53 fenders. I had to fill in the tire cut-out though in the left side.

It looks OK from the side, but I think from other angles it may look just plain wrong.

A stock AD is a beautiful truck as is. It takes an artful eye to make it better.

If I was going to tweak the bed profile, I would probably start with chevy based parts.
